For over a month now, Disneyland’s hub has been a mess of construction walls as the waterways between the area and Adventureland and Frontierland have been out of guest view. Just yesterday, these walls came down revealing the work that had taken place.
What we see is a far smaller body of water and a lot more landmass. However, Disney has not gone so far as to make any of this path space… yet.
The Adventureland side still has foliage, just much less.
Overall, there is just way less greenery than there was before and seemingly a little more landmass. You couldn’t see much dirt here before, it was mostly plants.
Not much has changed over by Fantasy Faire.
There are still some walls up between Fantasy Faire and Frontierland.
It remains unclear what the eventual plan is for this space, if there is any, but with all the recent planter removal and reduction around the park (Tomorrowland, New Orleans Square, and Frontierland), we assume that we will see more guest path space made in this area to handle the expected crowds for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in 2019. We’ll just have to wait and see.
